SPIDER HOLSTER LAUNCHES TILT CAMPAIGN FOR COVETED SPIDERPRO HAND STRAP
Spider Holster invites photographers from around the world to help bring to market their highly-anticipated SpiderPro Hand Strap
Ithaca, NY — September 23, 2014 — Spider Camera Holster (www.spiderholster.com), makers of unique, ergonomic camera-carrying solutions for photographers, today announced the launch of their first ever Tilt crowd funding campaign for their newest and most anticipated product, the SpiderPro Hand Strap. In a world of camera hand straps that do not function well, the SpiderPro Hand Strap’s marriage of meticulous design and proprietary materials mark a paradigm shift in how a hand strap should look, feel and function. Beginning now through November 14, 2014, photographers of all skill levels and specialties are invited to preorder their own SpiderPro Hand Strap, available in a variety of colors and product packages, by visiting spiderholster.com.
As with all Spider Holster products, the SpiderPro Hand Strap is designed to address real-world, everyday problems. Photographers frequently struggle with hand straps that have flimsy webbing connections to the camera, require proprietary plates, have large plastic connectors, or employ a "straight line" design that fails to provide real weight support.
The SpiderPro Hand Strap combats these issues with its superior weight support through proprietary materials, a unique "S" shape that allows clear access to the battery door and memory card slots, materials that curve and “remember” the shape of your hand and a truly universal connection to the bottom of the camera.
“Over the years, our loyal customers have regularly sent us feedback on what they desire in a hand strap. We listened, and we’ve come up with a strap design that fits our customer’s needs while also meeting Spider Holster’s rigorous product standards,” said Shai Eynav, founder and president of Spider Holster. “We’re incredibly excited to be this close to making the SpiderPro Hand Strap a reality, and this Tilt campaign will make it possible for us to begin putting them in our customers’ hands as early as the 2014 holiday season.”
5 Facts About the SpiderPro Hand Strap
1. Its unique, thin and extremely durable material slides IN BETWEEN the camera body and any tripod plate, making the SpiderPro strap truly universal.
2. The camera slot connection is carefully designed and crafted from proprietary materials that allow both a sound connection to the camera body (allowing easy access of user’s hand in and out of the strap) and flexibility to handle the controls.
3. The uniquely curved “S” shape positions the user’s hand at optimal shooting position (at 45 degrees to the camera body), allowing easy access to the trigger and all other controls while offering clear access to the battery door and memory card slots.
4. Its combination of design and materials provides real weight support in the correct places: over and above the knuckles, and close to the user’s wrist.
5. Its proprietary hand strap materials "remember" the shape of the user’s hand, providing greater functionality. Genuine leather and high-quality memory foam offer great comfort over longer periods of time.
Participants in the Tilt campaign may choose from a slew of rewards, such as limited edition colors and a variety of product packages. Spider Holster hopes to provide backers with their hand strap and/or chosen product package within one month of having met their target monetary goal. The greater the participation in the Tilt campaign, the greater the chances that photographers can receive their SpiderPro Hand Strap before the end of December, 2014.
